First post

Anyway, I've been reading books on Visual Basic Game Programming using DirectX and I have been trying to figure how to get that mix of 2d sprites and 3d backgrounds like in Ragnarok Online or in Final Fantasy Tactics. I think this makes one badass effect that I would kill to recreate! I know some of you are asking why a Visual Basic person is on these forums. The truth is, I've dabbled in DarkBASIC myself for awhile too and the people on the DarkBASIC forums tend to have better knowledge of DirectX use than on the Visual Basic forums. Any enlightment would be welcome.

Thanks!

well you could create a 3-d environment, make a 3d plain with a person gif file on it with the animation running or whatever, and move the plain, and it would look like that he was running, or jumping, whatever. That WILL work. And your welcome

take a look at my 'war' project. i'm uploading the code as soon as i can remember what my angelfire pword is. it's not too hard once you've got the first steps of the engine going.

Dark Basic will give you alot. I sugest that you get some kinda program working, practise and experiment and you'll learn. Don't expect to just jump in.

It's enough to make you wonder if your on the right planet!!! or
Get it straight! War breaks out and nobody shows up!!!
